Maja Salvador is Not Closing Her Door to Jon Avila
During the farewell press conference of Kapitan Boom last Monday, July 28, the press couldn’t help but notice Maja Salvador’s pretty glow. However, the actress quickly denied that a “special someone” was responsible for her radiant appearance. “Sawi pa rin po [ako],” she admitted with a laugh.
Her co-stars Jon Avila and Jay-R Siaboc who are being romantically linked to her are not the reason behind her glowing aura as well. “Alam naman natin na si Jay-R masaya,” said Maja, referring to Jay-R’s relationship with long-time girlfriend Irish Fullerton. But will Kapitan Boom mean the end of her hilarious tandem with Jay-R? “Mami-miss kong talakan si Jay-R kasi para kaming aso’t pusa. Siyempre po [pati na rin] yung cast dito kasi parang sobrang family na yung turingan namin. Kapag hindi kami nagte-take, kwentuhan, tawanan… Ganun,” the young actress enthused.
As for Jon, Maja is fully aware that some people are misunderstanding their closeness on the set. “Sa totoong buhay wala naman po talagang ligawan. Yung lumalabas na issue na kami daw, wala po talaga yun.” She further stressed her point, “Mahilig kasi siyang magbasa ng diyaro. So next taping day po namin uupo siya sa tabi ko tapos pag-uusapan namin kung anong lumabas sa diyaryo. Tapos sasabihin niya, 'Uy Maj sorry ha. Nabasa mo ba yung ganito sa diyaryo? Sabi nililigawan daw kita. Sorry ha.’ Ganun.” Maja added that they would simply laugh over the rumors.
When prodded about Jon’s “attraction” to her, Maja comically exclaimed to him, “Wow! Crush ka diyan! Sapukin kita eh!” Seriously though, she’s not closing her doors if Jon intends to pursue her for real. “Tignan po natin kung manliligaw nga po. Kasi depende po yun sa pagpupursige ng mga lalake. Depende po yan sa ipapakita.” But it seems that Jon has a good chance in light of Maja’s revelation that she was a Coverboys fan. “Nanood po ako ng Coverboys. Sinuportahan ko po sila. Okay naman po,” she shyly gushed.
But what about Geoff Eigenmann who escorted her down the red carpet during the Star Magic Ball last June 29? “Last year magkasama na rin kami [umattend ng Star Magic ball] kaya lang with a group kami. Pero this year, since may gagawin kami [na project] soon [kami ang magka-partner).” However, Maja refrained from giving details of the project so as not to jinx the plans for their team-up. “Surprise muna. Kailangang itago muna para hindi maudlot.”
In the meantime, Maja disclosed that an upcoming TV project is the one thing which is keeping her happy these days. “Siguro masaya lang po talaga ako kasi hindi ako pinapabayaan ng ABS-CBN. May mga projects talaga na magagandang binibigay po sa akin so sinusuklian ko lang. Siyempre kapag maraming projects kailangang magpaganda ‘di ba?” Then she hesitantly revealed that she already had a story conference for a soap where she’ll be playing the lead.
